It is interesting and not as far-fetched as "man never landed on the moon". However, the managers of the respective teams get all the flack for selecting or not selecting certain people. Why in the world would they subject themselves to this if they are not doing the selections? We all know that there is much more complaining for non-selections than there are compliments for selections. I am not sure I believe in the managers are being good company-men and following orders with the ruse. And Chapman is a pretty decent LOOGY to have at your disposal for any MLB manager in a game that requires zero staffing concerns.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
